Read Focus on God's Word, by DR Tony Evans, at One Place.
"In addition to focusing on God’s character, we must also focus on God’s Word in order to resist temptation. Sometimes we don’t understand the importance of the Word and the fact that it is alive and active... Many of us hold God’s Word in high esteem, but it has no power in our lives. The Bible wasn’t meant to decorate your coffee table or be held under your arm at church. The Word of God was written because of what it can do in our lives... The Word saved us, and it can also sanctify us. God’s Word works in the spiritual realm."
In the exercise of His will He brought us forth by the word of truth, so that we would be a kind of first fruits among His creatures.
